Hi All, this is the story of my Moggy build. It will be running a Nissan CA18DET from a 200SX, Megasquirt ECU & T4 turbo.
This engine is an amazing peice of kit although it does suffer oil starvation problems if not maintained properly. Mine has have a bottom end rebuild to open up the galeries & ARP shells and mains bolts and is rated at a 300bhp.
Running gear will be standard moggy up front but with Spax shox & Ford brakes (for starters anyhow) and a narrowed & redrilled to Chevy pattern (by ARRC im told) Volvo outback hanging off 4 bar & watts.
Stance wise, it will be a bit 'nose up' with narrow steels up front & phat Torq Thrust's out back.
Here's a few pics...
I bought it at the end of summer 2010 and it had to go into storage untill other projects were out of the way. She aint pretty and does need some new metal but she's pretty solid.
Bought as a rolling shell.
Brought her up to the workshop this week and imediatly dropped the engine in. Its snugg but shouldnt be to bad. I will have to cut a slot onto the top of the bell housing (as done with Fiat twink conversions) to clear the rack but it wont interfear with its strength.
Its supposed to sit on a cant by the way...
Thats it for now. I'll post more pictures and text when something exciting heppens.
